The rapid development of microwave non-destructive testing and evaluation (NDT&E) of materials and structures has increased the demand for improved microwave measurement methods and techniques. The use of ultra-wideband (UWB) measurement systems is of particular interest for civil engineering applications as it can detect defects and damages in construction materials and composite structures using imaging methods and techniques. The development of UWB high-gain Vivaldi array antennas for these systems with proper dimensions and high performance is one of the major challenges. The success of applying the UWB microwave technique is dependent on the operating frequency utilized for specified material under test.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
